The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) has been celebrating the work of security officers as part of the ‘International Security Officers’ Day. Launched in 2020, by the Australian Security Industry Association Limited (ASIAL), International Security Officers’ Day is to be held each year on 24 July. For 2021, the BSIA have been sharing pictures of its members’ officers at their workplaces and encouraging companies to do the same as a way of showcasing the people who work on the frontline every day, working tirelessly in ensuring our safety.
“We are proud to be promoting International Security Officers’ Day for the second year in a row,” said Mike Reddington, Chief Executive, BSIA. “Every day our officers are on duty ensuring that people, places and property are kept safe and secure, and in doing so can often be perceived as a hidden workforce. We want to highlight not only the vital work that they carry out but also acknowledge and applaud the pride that our officers feel for their jobs and the industry that they represent. We hope that this campaign, along with our ongoing Perceptions campaign, goes some way in showcasing our officers as respected, valued, professional service providers contributing to creating a safe and secure environment and acknowledged key workers who are and embedded in our daily lives.”
